See St. Benedict’s Painted Church, Big Island, Hawaii

Overlooking beautiful and historic Kealakekua Bay, St. Benedict's Painted Church is a fascinating place to visit on your journey to the Big Island of Hawaii. In the late 1800s, Belgian-born priest and self-taught artist Father John Velge painted the inside of the church with religious scenes in the style of Christian folk art found throughout the South Pacific. The church is located in the famous Kona coffee growing region, it is the jewel of South Kona, at a place called Honaunau. While it is an important historical site, it is still a active church.
